Real Madrid have announced the signing of midfielder Dani Ceballos from Real Betis.

Ceballos, 20, has become one of the most coveted players across Europe, having helped Spain reach the European Under-21 Championship final in Poland and winning the player of the tournament award.

Ceballos signs on a six-year contract after James Rodriguez joined Bayern Munich on a two-year loan deal earlier this week.

Real reportedly beat off competition from Barcelona to sign the youngster, who has also been linked with Liverpool in the past. Ceballos has already played 105 games for Betis, scoring seven goals and providing nine assists.

Real say Ceballos will join the team on their pre-season tour of the United States on Friday, July 21, after being unveiled the day before.

Ceballos becomes Real's second signing of the summer, after Theo Hernandez joined from city rivals Atletico Madrid earlier this week for £25m.
